SAN DIEGO — Felipe Lopez's three-run double highlighted a five-run seventh inning, lifting the Milwaukee Brewers to a 6-1 victory Sunday over the San Diego Padres.

Craig Counsell and Frank Catalanotto also drove in runs in the seventh, breaking a 1-1 tie against four San Diego pitchers and ending the Padres' five-game winning streak.

Mitch Stetter (3-1) got the final two outs of the sixth and earned the win, combining with four pitchers to give up five hits against a San Diego lineup that had at least 10 in five straight games.

Trevor Hoffman, who pitched 16 seasons for the Padres, worked the ninth inning and received a standing ovation from the remaining fans.
